November 913, 2013 | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the opportunity to expand treatment for opioid dependence into the mainstream of medical practice, increase the number of persons treated, and have an important positive public health impact. The legislation species several ways in which physicians can be considered qualied to prescribe and dispense buprenorphine in their ofces for the treatment of opioid dependence. The completion of this training fullls the requirement prior to notifying the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) of their intention to begin prescribing buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid dependence. The presentation is designed to train qualied physicians in dispensing or prescribing specically approved Schedule III, IV and V narcotic medications for the treatment of opioid addiction in an ofce-based setting. The goal of this training is to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to provide optimal care to opioid dependent patients by providing: 1) an overview of opioid dependence; 2) the efcacy and safety of buprenorphine; 3) process of patient selection; 4) clinical use of buprenorphine; 5) nonpharmacological interventions; 6) medical psychiatric conditions in opioid dependent patients, ofce procedures; and 7) special treatment population. Designated by the DHHS, this training meets the eight hour requirement and is designed for physicians to dispense buprenorphine in ofce practice for treatment of opioid dependence. Participation in this training will provide physicians with a comprehensive overview of buprenorphine prescribing and its safe and effective use in an ofce-based setting. This training is designed for physicians and other primary care providers who are likely to treat opioid dependent persons in their practice, such as those in family practice, general internal medicine, psychiatry, pediatrics and adolescent medicine specialists.

OTP Clinical Staff Education: Appropriate Use of Methadone in the OTP

Valentin Bonilla, PA, Beth Israel Hospital, New York, NY Carolyn Baird, DNP, Waynesburg University, McMurray, PA

While methadone is recognized as a safe and effective medication, it is important that it be prescribed/dispensed and taken properly. Clinical staff must appreciate its idiosyncrasies and be able to identify potentially dangerous drug interactions, misuse and abuse. Patients lives depend on it. The recent rise in methadone mortality has brought additional scrutiny to the use of methadone. Although the increase in deaths appears to be linked to the increased use of the medication in treatment of pain, rather than in Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is proactive in developing and delivering targeted clinical training to providers in OTPs to assure that they apply best practice and the most current information on methadone use in the OTP setting. Participants will be able to describe the unique characteristics of methadone pharmacology and pharmacotherapy; understand OTP patient screening, assessment, induction, stabilization and maintenance techniques; identify and address co-occurring medical and psychiatric disorders; and outline treatment services and appropriate levels of care.

1:00 p.m.4:00 p.m.

Independence Ballroom II

The objective of this session is to highlight the risk of Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) liability for patients and third parties who are injured in vehicular accidents arising out of the negligent administration of methadone, and/or inadequate counseling or monitoring of continuous illicit drug use. The Mock Trial and Focus Group Presentation are premised upon an actual case brought by an injured patient against an OTP. Conference participants will be presented with the closing arguments of counsel. The plaintiffs (injured party) case focuses on prots over people. The plaintiff alleges that the clinic failed to implement any meaningful consequences in response to the patients continued use of illicit drugs, specically benzodiazepines. Plaintiff contends that if she was faced with consequences for continued drug use, she would have stopped using benzodiazepines, and the accident would not have occurred. The plaintiffs case highlights the legal consequences of violating company policies, state regulations and industry standards, and the legal implications of such violations in a court of law. The defense of the clinic focuses upon the concept of harm reduction and personal responsibility. Despite continuous positive drug screens, the patient made signicant progress in the program, with periods of complete abstinence. The defense contends that the clinic cannot be held responsible

for the poor decisions of a fully informed, consenting adult. There is also emphasis on the absence of legal causation; i.e., evidence that had the consequences been attempted, the patient would have stopped using illicit drugs (and the accident would have been avoided). The teaching session will focus on the importance of adequate documentation, and compliance with policies and regulations. The presenters will show actual video clips from mock trial jury deliberations which reveal laypersons thoughts on methadone treatment, the OTP industry, and drug addiction in general.
Sponsored by the American Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence, Inc. (AATOD)

The session will be presented with a strong emphasis on how the stages of change and a patient-driven approach, as part of a comprehensive cessation program, are effective methods to encourage abstinence from tobacco in OTP patients. Finally, participants will have ample time to ask questions about the program and related issues. All participants will be asked to complete a post-session evaluation (for the presenters use) and a tobacco literacy test that will be self-assessed and will not be collected by the presenters.

The SAMHSA Tobacco Cessation Program for Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) session will provide conference participants with the awareness, knowledge and tools that will enable them to determine the appropriateness of the tobacco cessation program for incorporation into their treatment facilities and assess the readiness of their tobacco-addicted patients. The rst part of the presentation will briey focus on the importance of a tobacco cessation program that specically addresses the OTP patient population, as evidenced by several studies. Participants will learn about the higher-than-average prevalence of tobacco use among opioid users, the physiological and psychological reasons for high rates of smoking and tobacco addiction among this population, the health implications of co-addiction, evidence-based tobacco cessation practices that are tailored to addressing the particular needs of co-addicts, and the SAMHSA Tobacco Cessation Programs unique approach to achieving cessation success in the target OTP patient population. The second portion of this session will provide participants with an overview of the tobacco cessation program and its fundamental principles: use of the stages of change model, and a patient-driven approach. In addition, the participants will learn the requirements of the program for OTP clinics, administrators, staff and patients who use tobacco. They will have the opportunity to review the Trainers Manual and the Patients Workbook for the program. Participants will have the opportunity to complete an actual session from the program.

Studies in community outpatient and residential settings, and across varying populations and treatment durations, have examined once monthly injectable extended-release naltrexone (XR-NTX) combined with psychosocial treatment in terms of effectiveness for preventing relapse to opioid use, reducing cravings and increasing retention. This session will describe clinical experience using XR-NTX as well as safety and effectiveness ndings from 15 studies in opioid dependence that have been published, are in press or have been presented (aggregate XR-NTX-treated N=1,683). In addition, the session will present outcomes following pain-related adverse events and experience with HIV+ and Hep C+ in patients treated with XR-NTX. Research funded by Alkermes, Inc.

Opioid Treatment Programs and patients have historically been the target of negative public opinion and adverse media coverage. This has affected our ability to effectively inuence national drug policy, explain the science of opioid addiction and treatment, gain the funding necessary to provide quality treatment to all who require it, and ultimately operate in the best interests of our patients and communities. This session teaches three key messages specically designed to counter the stigma and stereotypes deeply embedded in the perception of opioid addiction and medication assisted treatment. These messages resulted from a year-long pilot project, Communicating Messages that Achieve Results. Participants will hear these messages and learn how to communicate them in order to create a positive impact within their communities. This session will include Q & A techniques designed to deal with emotional audiences while reinforcing the presentation objectives. For session effectiveness, participation is limited to the rst 50 attendees who arrive for the session.

There are many professionals potentially involved in treatment decisions for opioid dependent pregnant women. These include the womens primary care/OB-GYN team, substance abuse treatment provider, and if referred or involved in the child welfare system, the child welfare social worker and judicial representatives (the parents lawyer, childs lawyer and the judge). Each professional and the organizations that they represent are responding to directives from their organizations, or in the absence of directives, using their professional judgments.


AATOD 2013 Conference

SAMHSAs National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW) organized a working group to articulate the questions and policy considerations that guide practice for a wide range of professionals working with opioid dependent pregnant women. In addition, the Womens Services Network (WSN) of the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) is working with the NCSACW to describe practices that are implemented in states to address the needs of opioid dependent pregnant women and their newborns. This session will share the information developed by this working group and these state practices. The session will also highlight the work of the Children and Recovering Mothers (ChARM) collaborative in Vermont that is coordinated by the Kids Collaborative of Chittenden County. The focus of the collaborative is meeting the needs of pregnant and postpartum women and babies where there is a history of opioid use. This initiative has worked out many of the policy and communication protocols for addressing the needs of the families and could present their lessons learned at the session.

From START to Finish: National and International Perspectives on Disseminating Research to Practice for the Treatment for Opioid Dependence
SESSION CHaIR & DISCuSSaNT: Andrew J. Saxon, MD, University of

Washington, Seattle, WA

To complement the ndings and dissemination strategies from the U.S. perspective, a panel of international collaborators will present ndings from studies conducted abroad and implementation strategies that have been successful. Presentations will include outcomes from a collaborative project between NIDA and treatment providers in Indonesia, data from epidemiological studies showing the association between the length of MET treatment and mortality rates and dissemination and implementation strategies, and the use of incentive-based interventions in reducing drug use and associated consequences. The session will also describe the N-ALIVE (NALoxone InVEstigation) studya large, prison-based trial that assesses the number of lives that could be saved by providing Naloxone-on-release to adult prisoners with a history of heroin injection. Discussion: Andrew J. Saxon, MD, University of Washington, Seattle, WA Dr. Saxon will lead a discussion on how the knowledge gained from these analyses and ndings can be translated for the implementation of relevant MET or BUP/Nx treatment in clinical settings treating opioid dependent patients in the U.S. as well as internationally.

To date, the National Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network Starting Treatment with Agonist Replacement Treatment Study (START) (Saxon et al., 2013) includes the largest database of patients (n=1269) entering opioid agonist treatment programs at community methadone centers around the United States (U.S.). Participants in the study were randomized to either a Methadone (MET) treatment or Buprenorphine/Naloxone (BUP/Nx) treatment, and closely monitored during induction as well as throughout active treatment and follow-up. Pharmacotherapy was provided for 24 weeks with taper or continuation possible through week 32. Primary outcomes showed low rates of liver injury and no differences in liver functions between MET and BUP/Nx groups. Secondary ndings present a multitude of interesting and clinically relevant outcomes.

With the advent of the Affordable Care Act and the ongoing development of new forms of pharmacotherapy for substance use disorders, it is necessary to think beyond regulatory and practice environments. Matching patients to treatment with ever individualizing care will become the norm. This program will provide attendees with an understanding of the different properties, risks and benets of existing pharmacotherapies. Speakers will use their rsthand experience with the investigation and clinical use of buprenorphine and naltrexone to go beyond pharmacology to examine matching the needs and goals of individuals to the available medications and associated outcomes. While taking into account the very real barriers and boundaries encountered in the treatment system, the speakers will explore ways to expand access and build on the system as it exists to increase options for individuals.

Risk Management Strategies for 2013 and Beyond

Paul J. Siegel, JD, Jackson Lewis, LLP, Melville, NY

Employers face workplace law challenges at every stage of the employment relationship, including hiring and retaining staff, ensuring compliance with wage and hour laws, managing family and medical leaves, and managing performance problems. Given the continued growth of employment litigation, a comprehensive review of employment policies should be a key component of any organizations risk management strategy. Employers can proactively address potential workplace law challenges and then develop business practices to meet those threats. What may have worked in 1995 or 2005 no longer protects you in 2013 (and surely not in years to come). Avoiding jury trials, class and collective actions and violations of overtime or other workplace laws all require greater expertise, planning and strategic analysis. This session will review the major areas of employment litigation and suggest cures for workplace ills. Participants will learn about recent developments in wage and hour claims, aggressive expansion of the rights of disabled workers and EEOC initiatives, as well as steps that employers can take to improve employee handbooks and other protective employment policies. Due to budget cuts, stafng woes and operational needs, employers too often neglect human resources issuesresulting in out-of-date handbooks, unlawful application forms, inadequate documentation of problem workers, failure to engage in an interactive process when confronted with an employees medical problems and many other workplace law challenges. This session will identify areas requiring immediate attention and will suggest remedies.

Opioid agonists for addiction treatment (primarily methadone, but also buprenorphine) have been associated with QTc prolongation. SAMHSA and AATOD recommend performing ECG in patients with risk factors for QTc prolongation. Ongoing concern for limited access to care, uncertainty regarding the risk of arrhythmia with these agents and the feasibility of a cardiac safety program persist. This workshop provides pharmacovigilance data for several opioid agonists. Specically, we will present analyses of FDA adverse events to illustrate potential cardiac safety signals. In addition, insights regarding the effectiveness and challenges implementing a Cardiac Safety Program in a US OTP will be shared.

Staff training was important but insufcient to change organizational practices. Engaging key decision makers in strategic planning improved service coordination between correctional and treatment agencies. The outcomes of probationers successfully linked to MAT indicate that this implementation strategy may facilitate the dual goals of improved public health and public safety.

The topic of the non-medical use of prescribed opioids/painkillers has sparked a great deal of controversy and concern both within and outside of the medical community. Attitudes, beliefs and behaviors triggered by stigma and misinformation have resulted in policy recommendations and legislation. Although well-meaning, these could result in a greater burden on those who need and those who provide treatment. The Town Hall will highlight the underlying issues of opioid use, misuse, dependence, addiction treatment and recovery. The session will also address the role of physicians and other health care professionals in aligning, coordinating and integrating efforts to respond to this national crisis and serve as a collaborative platform for an open discussion and planning. The Town Hall is open to health care professionals, i.e., physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, counselors, policy makers, etc., to discuss trends and strategies from a healthcare community perspective on the treatment of pain, screening, early intervention, and referral to treatment of opiate dependence, addiction and recovery.

OTPs provide a unique opportunity to address co-morbid medical conditions, poor nutrition and mental health problems associated with SUDs. Often a key point of contact for patients within the healthcare system, OTP providers may contribute to prevention, detection, treatment and/or referrals for various disorders, and research has shown that integrating medical care into OTPs is effective and cost saving. This workshop will enhance awareness (e.g., topics for patient education) and provide skills (e.g., health coaching skills, tools for navigating care systems) for psychosocial treatment providers in helping the recovering patient succeed with health and well-being goals beyond abstinence.

This workshop will describe the development of clinical guidelines for the management of benzodiazepines in the context of medication assisted treatment. We will dene the major issues surrounding the use of benzodiazepines in medication assisted treatment, including impairment, clinical outcomes and risk management concerns. We will then describe the development of clinical guidelines using the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness method, a unique methodology that combines the best available scientic evidence and the collective judgment of experts to yield statements regarding the appropriateness of a given clinical practice. Finally, we will explore potential challenges in implementing clinical guidelines addressing benzodiazepine use in medication assisted treatment.

The Ofce of the National Drug Control Policy released the Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan which identies implementing Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) as a means to reduce prescription drug abuse. Although federal condentiality laws and regulations prohibit Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) from sending patient health information to PDMPs, OTPs can and should access PDMPs for information on their patients. This workshop will provide OTP staff and other stakeholders an overview of PDMPs, one OTP medical directors rsthand account of her experience using a PDMP, and a former OTP directors experience integrating a PDMP into their electronic health record.

There are a number of quality and clinical concerns about the use of buprenorphine in Pennsylvania, including coordination of care, persistently high dosing, diversion, inadequate access in rural areas, and high relapse rate upon discontinuation. This workshop describes the development of Community Cares recovery-oriented best practice guidelines (BPG) for buprenorphine, in a multi-stakeholder process between 2011 and 2013. Presenters will review the content and also discuss challenges and practical applications of these guidelines in Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) and other venues to maximize recovery outcomes. Development methodology and lessons learned will be shared. November 913, 2013 | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A prospective study revealing dramatic preliminary ndings initiated this workshop. It addresses a model to reduce crime, recidivism, relapse rates of opioid dependent abusers and drug seeking behavior upon release, and in the end, prevent overdose and suicides. The program now includes those who were active in an OTP prior to incarceration, those who were addicted and never treated and those who were in a treatment program previously, but not immediately before incarceration. Education of correctional personnel, transitioning the inmate to an outpatient setting, and aftercare in an acceptable OTP is critical. Methods will be discussed and an open forum will follow the presentation.

In response to high rates of opioid-related overdoses, many communities are providing education and naloxone rescue kits (take-home naloxone) via street outreach or syringe access programs, and, increasingly, in opioid treatment programs and other care settings. Research has demonstrated successful implementation of take-home naloxone, including reductions in mortality after implementation. In this workshop we will describe the current state of the evidence for take-home naloxone, including an ongoing randomized trial in an emergency department, an ecological analysis of the population impact, and an implementation study among released inmates. We will also discuss the implications for opioid treatment programs.

Go Eagles! Want more history? Independence Hall, the Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell are right down the street from the hotel.

In addition to all this rich history in nation-building, many of you will have an interest in Philadelphias contributions to medicine.
